Well, since the ZH server is still quite active apparently, a thread was needed for people to report possible bugs, ideas and comments. :cool:

I'm especially looking for feedback on the unusuals : if some people think some effects suck and should be removed, please let me know. I'm also open for effects suggestions (I already have a couple in mind). So don't hesitate to post them here.

Also, those who were working on maps for the mappack should post them here again (I'm thinking of Stiff, manuelbkn, etc...) but I'm not sure these people are still around. :neutral:

Regarding what's going to come in the future, I'm mainly thinking of reworking some of my maps that, I think, are quite bad/boring such as ZM01, 02 and 05. But I still need to find the time and the motivation to do it. :rolleyes:

Let me know what you think.

Ok, well since this is here, I shall post my commentary about this mod at long last.

I've never actually played ZH online; heard many mixed opinions about it and kept my distance. But decided to give it a shot today since nothing else was going down.

First off, the good stuff: The maps are very cinematic and beautiful in their own way. The environments, though sometimes lacking in extra details, look great and the atmosphere is usually just right. I really dig the one map with the skybox that has meteors flying around crashing and exploding all over the place.

The game concept is also pretty cool. The weapons and effects look and feel pretty good (although that shotgun firing sound...ugh). But it's definitely the map visuals that certainly stand out.

Now, for the bad (the criticism). First and foremost, the mod is extremely unbalanced. Some maps the zombies rain utter supreme, other maps the humans are practically invincible. This mostly has to do with the whole "knockback" mechanic. For example, the map with the (ripped) Pirates of the Caribbean music, at the end the players must climb up some ropes and onto a boat. If the humans camp the ropes, it is literally impossible for the zombies to get up to them at all. There are many instances like this in other maps. What I suggest is giving the zombies the ability to either: A) Jump MUCH higher than normal, or B) Climb up and scale any wall surface they claw at (look on the ZDoom forums for Cutman's "Climbing Claws" mod for an example if needed). This will give the zombies more mobility, prevent players from camping/exploiting normally unreachable locations, AND take care of the problem I had just described.

Another big problem is getting lost on the maps. A good handful (if not most) of the maps are not linear, so both humans and zombies can get lost really, really easily. Sure, there are map markers on some of them, but it's a bit irritating to have to open the map just to see where to go. I suggest implementing the HudMessageOnActor() function and making use of that. And, not to implicitly use WhoDunIt as an example, but like WDI, I also suggest using the function when a good percentage of humans are gone. This will make it a bit easier for the zombies to find the remaining players and get the round over faster, along with making things less campy.

There is likely more I could talk about (good and bad), but I stopped playing after a maps after playing both teams and seeing the major balance issues. This mod has its ups but it REALLY has to work on balance, and making sure that things aren't confusing to new players, particularly with the maps.

Also, I think you really have to do something with brightness, like adjust maps to default opengl standart. Some OGL-exclusive hosted mods are using forced DARK light mode. ZH is not using it yet. It's also not suprise that every ZH player is using LEGACY light mode. But some admins are joking with forcing dark mode where YOU CAN"T SEE SHIT on most of the maps. It makes me changing gamma all the time and it's so screwed up.

glad to see this thread back. have you seen that RQ marker addon? it punishes initial zombie rage quitters and resets the map quite nifty, imo should be included in the next version.

Map reset is done server-side (Konar6 uses a patched version of server, do you know?), but everything except that is my work.

Zombie Horde is an underrated mod, but it's alright. It doesn't need to be extremely modern, but I felt the need to alter the weapons a bit.

This wad is a smooth weapons wad, altering all weapons for aesthetic appeal. I tried to keep them as close to the originals as possible, so here it is. Maybe it could be put on the Grandvoid server sometime. Enjoy.

hey Xsnake, does have zombie horde some no infection item? because i saw a dud two times that doesn´t get infected, he ended dead with all the tries of infection lol, on the next round the same, but he couldn´t win (all the zombies was on the 3d copter xD), ahh have another one but it wasn´t he, he got infected but all the zombies died (and the score show there was one zombie O_o when he disconnected then it have 0 zombies lol...


Well, I love the mod, the one thing that maybe i would like to see is some new maps :)

EDIT:about the weapons, i think it´s good the actual weapons (maybe a bfg9000 secret weapon would be nice to see hehehe)

Something like this had been already on the server but it was removed in a day or so because of weapons kickback and rage of "pro" whose said they can't get used to new timing of weapons.

While the idea of the smooth weapons is good, I don't think the effects and animations fit in DOOM. For stuff like this we can play modern or semi modern games.
The sounds also while more realistic turn old quickly. The original sounds for the weapons were very distinctive, it was impossible to confuse each weapon sound, now shotgun and rifle sound (and look) more or less the same and the chaingun doesn't sound enough different either. And the sound for explosions doesn't differ enough from gun shots.
I know this aims for realism, but DOOM has little place for that.

Just my opinions, I know others will think different.
